Look inside

Exciting things are happening at Generigloop, and the senior vice executive’s undersecretary needs help keeping things organized. They’ve asked you, their junior assistant, to create a tool for drawing organizational charts. Seizing the opportunity to impress—and learn valuable skills while getting paid—you volunteer to research what it will take to create a chart-drawing tool using Python and C#. You’ll learn techniques for drawing family trees, hierarchical component diagrams, document hierarchies, and other tree structures.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.


This liveProject is for intermediate C# programmers who are familiar with WPF. To begin these liveProjects you’ll need to be familiar with the following:

  • Visual Studio 2022
  • Windows operating system
  • Create a class
  • Define constructors
  • Override a class’s `ToString` method
  • Work with arrays and lists, and iterate through them


You choose the schedule and decide how much time to invest as you build your project.
